Prov. 3, 5

1.  God is the fountain of all good–Ps. 36.  He created &  preserves all things–is the fountain of all life.  “Every good and perfect gift” is from him.

2.  He has made his intelligent creatures dependent upon himself.  “Grace & truth came by Jesus Christ.”

3.  He has promised to communicate what they need.  “My God shall supply all your need.”–Phils. 4, 19.  Need grace to nourish the soul.  “Ask, seek, knock” and thus find.

4.  He commands them to believe his promise and look for the fulfillment.  He has obligated himself to respond to faith; this his nature to do it.  He would not arouse expectation just to disappoint it.

5.  But we are to do this without fear, or distrust–“with all the heart.”  We sinned by disbelieving him, now we return to him by believing.  He encourages us to do it.  Why should we not?
